ATHENA NextGen Thought Leadership Series

To create stronger female business leaders...

The ATHENA NextGen Thought Leadership Series at weVENTURE focuses on capacity building sessions in which women are motivated to connect, share and grow.  The program is based on the internationally successful NextGen program in Orlando, Florida, which was cofounded by Karen Keene, President of ATHENA Orlando Women's Leadeship Inc. and a member of the Board of Directors of ATHENA International.

Participants take a “deeper dive” and learn about ATHENA’s Eight Principles of Enlightened Leadership. Sessions are facilitated by a diverse group of prominent women business leaders along the Space Coast who volunteer their time by sharing their own stories and leadership lessons.  The sessions are once per month from April through November.  

The Women’s Leadership Enrichment Program aims to provide supplemental ongoing experimental learning and enrichment opportunities during and after participants in the ATHENA NextGen Leadership Series learn core curriculum competencies.

ATHENA NextGen participants will have access to:

  • coaching opportunities
  • capacity building seminars
  • group communications
  • volunteer engagement through weVENTURE

Participants in the ATHENA NextGen Program are also invited to join us at:

  • Quarterly Strong Coffee Strong Women events and
